Say hello to the 'Sketchy Youths'
The Impact Arts Youth Steering Group who now go by the name of the 'Sketchy Youths' met earlier this month for a development day. The group (who have all participated previously in one of Impact Arts’ programmes), have now been joined by the Youth Trustee and Board member Rosa Hackett, a recent graduate of Glasgow School of Art in Painting and Printmaking.
The Sketchy Youths are (left to right) young designer Lewis, trainee web developer Brendan and aspiring writer and filmmaker Sofia, with Youth Trustee Rosa.The group love creative expression, believe in the power of the arts and are committed to creating a platform for young people’s voices to be heard.
It was a productive session where the group wrote their manifesto, spent some time planning the launch of their blog and worked on the Sketchy Youths branding.
We can wait to hear and find out more about the 'Sketchy Youths' and their plans for the future. Watch this space for more exciting updates!
